CollegeTracks offers our volunteers the unique opportunity to be part of our critical work to help students through the college admission and financial aid processes or as a Test Prep tutor.
Being a CollegeTracks volunteer can be demanding and requires a good deal of energy, but the experience is very rewarding! Volunteers are critical to our work, and they assume various roles within our organization. We have two types of volunteer positions available through our program. You may choose to be a College Access Volunteer or a Test Prep Volunteer. Each requires a weekly commitment of 2-6 hours on a specified school day for the duration of the academic year. All volunteers are required to participate in a role-specific training program to ensure they have the best tools and resources to support their work with students.
- Believe that all students who graduate from high school deserve the opportunity to go to college or technical school
- Have a degree from a two-year or four-year U.S. college or university
- Be friendly, empathetic, and sensitive to cultural differences
- Have strong interpersonal, communication, and problem-solving skills
- Maintain the confidentiality of all student information
- Feel comfortable advising all students— volunteers are not assigned as mentors to individual students
- Be willing to ask questions whenever in doubt
- Pass a criminal background check
- Attend volunteer training sessions
- Commit to volunteer during the school day for a minimum of two to six hours (depending on the volunteer role) for an entire academic year (September – June)
Prospective volunteers are selected as space becomes available.
